More about the Nokia N800

Personally I like Nokia products and it doesn’t matter whether it is a cell phone or a tablet. Currently I own Nokia N800 and would like to say a bit about it.

In 2007 Nokia N800 was introduced as a replacement for Nokia 770 version, which was one of the first tablets ever. It had a large variety of new and improved features such as:

doubled the amount of RAM
